is a wrenching personal one for most americans. it deals with issues that are fundamental and profound. both in terms of personal feelings and public policy. but we now have a candidate for the highest office in the land. mitt romney, for whom the whole question of abortion seems negotiable. it's just another bargaining chip, a moveable position that changes whenever is politically convenient. here's the latest from an interview from an iowa newspaper. >> do you intend to pursue any legislation specifically regarding abortion? >> there's no legislation with regard to abortion that i'm familiar with that would become part of my agenda. >> a new romney promise. no new abortion laws. is mitt to reassure women that he's really not going after their rights? the national review was told, quote, governor romney would, of course, support legislation aimed at providing greater protections for life. this is the second time this year the campaign corrected their candidate on abortion. back in august, romney said abortion should be legal in several situations, including when the health of the mother is

which values. let me tell you about the mitt romney that i know. >> incredible. >> you both saw benjamin netanyahu hold up the picture of a bomb with a red line through it. >> thank heavens we have the sanctions in place, and it is in spite of their opposition. all i have to point to is the results. they are four years closer to a nuclear weapon. look, did they come in and inherit a bad situation? absolutely. we are going in the wrong direction. slower than last year, and that was slower than the year before. august was slower than it was in july. >> the republican national committee is responsible for the content of this advertisement. host: next up on "washington journal," getting your reaction to the debate, back. ohio. your opinion of last night? caller: last night was awesome. i think vice president joe biden did an awesome job. last week when the debate was with the president of the united states, president barack obama and governor mitt romney, mitt romney was very rude. he was rude to the president. he was rude to america. i am one of the 47%. i am 55 years old. i started working

liberal both the way he governed since the 2010 midterms and in his campaigning. and i think the romney campaign and rnc have an ad out right now calling president obama a liberal. identifying him as such for voters which makes voters jobs a little bit easier. this is opening for romney campaign to continue to make that point and tie his policies with that idealogical label. martha: steve, they will be both out in force in ohio over the course of this week. rob portman will be campaigning with mitt romney as will chris christie. talk to me about the tightening in ohio. >> ohio, it is, isn't too much to say ohio is crucial obviously. if you look at the polls i think there was a sense both in public polling and internal polling for the campaigns that ohio was slipping away from republicans in a state that they need to win. now seems there is some tightening. there was a poll out in michigan last night shows president obama only up three points there. if president obama is only up three points in michigan and that's a good poll, it's likely that ohio is back to a dead-heat which insures th

half of those likely voters surveyed think president obama is more moderate th mitt romney. i think by any objective measure that is simply not true. if you look the way president obama has governed both before the 2010 midterms and particularly after the 2010 midterms when he did nothing to moderate his positions. he did not do a bill clinton style shift toe the center where he tried to triangulate. he has been proud, rather aggressive liberal both the way he governed since the 2010 midterms and in his campaigning. and i think the romney campaign and rnc have an ad out right now calling president obama a liberal. identifying him as such for voters which makes voters jobs a little bit easier. this is opening for romney campaign to continue to make that point and tie his policies with that idealogical label. martha: steve, they will be both out in force in ohio over the course of this week. rob portman will be campaigning with mitt romney as will chris christie. talk to me about the tightening in ohio. >> ohio, it is, isn't too much to say ohio is crucial obviously. if you look at th

morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> ron, is mitt romney trying to ve more to the center? what does his statement mean? >> first of all, mitt romney is going to be a pro life president and his campaign is saying he will have a pro life agenda. in that same interview with the des moines register, he said he would reinstitute the mexico city policy, which would end federal funding for abortions overseas in other countries. right now he's talking about what voters care about, which is jobs, the economy, rising deficits. >> i understand. hang on. hang on. hang on. ron, we're not going to do talking points here. i'm asking you a very simple question. >> i'm not doing talking points. >> i didn't ask you about the economy. we can get to that. what did he mean in his statement that seems to be contradictory statements? >> i just told you what he meant. he said that his agenda is not going to be focused on abortion. it's going to be -- he did not say it was going to be focused on other issues, but obviously it's going to be. that's why he talked about the economy, what voters care about in t

on the vice president to kind of move both of those lines of argument forward tonight. >> do you think we're going to hear from the vice president some of the things that the president did not mention, the 47% comment that mitt romney made, the role of bain capital, the issue of how much he pays in taxes? >> well, i think some of the things about romney himself. >> he has made arguments like that, repeatedly, dozen of times, it is central to his view of the debate about the role of government. he has repeatedly argued that once we get to a point where a majority of americans are receiving government benefits of one sort or another, they will vote themselves more benefits at the expense of those who are paying taxes. i mean, mitt romney has, as you know, and sean hannity renounce whatted he said about the 47%, but it is essential to paul ryan's view of the world, so it will be interesting to see what he says about it, and mitt romney's later comments about it. >> i want to you see this. again, our viewers were looking at air force two. we're waiting for the vice president to get out of the

if not more. maybe 92% or 93%. they're either voting for sure for president obama or sure for romney. maybe 6%, 7%, 8% legitimately undecided orswitchable, if you will. still able to change their minds. it's that group, undecides, switchables in the key battleground states both campaigns are going after right now, and i think in a close race like this, it's going to be very, very close in these battleground states. everything is important, and tonight's debate will be important as well. although the two remaining president's debates will be more important. >> right. those undecideds you said, critically important. wolf, you have a busy night ahead. prepare for your show and for the coverage tonight. a big prop for what you're about to undergo. the big running mate's challenge on the stage. our coverage helmed by mr. wolf blitzer along with anderson cooper and our crack team, panelists and pundits starting at 7:00 p.m. eastern. you can't get to a tv, cnn.com has a live, too, streaming. if we want to improve our schools... ...what should we invest in? maybe new buildings? what about updated equ

are accusing romney of flip-flopping, flip-flopping on all kinds of items since debate number one. we have some sound. let me play this. this is bill clinton. president obama, both talking about that. first, bill clinton. >> i thought, wow, here's old moderate mitt. where you been, boy? i miss eed you all these last f years. >> governor romney put forward a whole bunch of stuff that either involved him running away from position he had taken or doubling down on thing like medicare vouchers that are going to hurt him long term. >> so, jim, does the nuance here on abortion by romney, does it play into what the president and others are saying, that romney is reinventing himself here, you know, 27 days before the election? >> well, the romney campaign would argue, no, but you are right that the obama campaign is starting to seize on this, the obama campaign had a conference call earlier this morning and they latched on to something mitt romney said at the cpac conference in february of this year whenitt romney said he was a severely conservative governor. stephanie cutter said on the conference cal
